This one-day interactive seminar is

focused on what happens to writing when art becomes research – and

research becomes art. The aim is to develop artist’s awareness of

artistic research and its impact on artistic practice.

artist based in Berlin. Between 2007-2009 he was professor for Artistic

Research at the post-graduate programme of the Finnish Academy of Fine

Arts in Helsinki. Since 2011 he is professor for Graphics and

Printmaking at the Univeristy of Applied Arts Vienna. In 2007, his “An
